Soo Visual Arts Center is a nonprofit art space that connects our community with fresh, under-represented and provocative art.
Soo VAC members make it possible for us to showcase and nurture the careers of fresh, under-represented and provocative artists. We are incredibly proud of our 12 years of supporting and exhibiting over 2000 artists.
Please support our Marvel Membership Campaign by helping us raise $5000 by June 30. Consider joining us or renewing you membership now as a “Sustainer”.
A Marvel is a person that evokes wonder and astonishment – a great definition of each artist we support, our friends in the SooVAC community and YOU!
"SooVAC doesn’t limit itself to work that is easy to define or even necessarily sellable…I felt that everyone involved in this show wanted to help the artists get to a new level and expand their audiences. I’m extremely grateful to have gotten to be part of the experience." Leslie
Kelman, artist Untitled 9
“The SooVAC was the first gallery to carry my work and give me a show when others didn't "get it". Their support of local and emerging artists is second to none.” Sean Tubridy, artist
“SooVAC is bright little beacon in the middle of uptown!” Meher Khan, donor and former SooVAC intern
Support SooVac’s Marvel membership campaign today by becoming a sustaining member with a tax-deductible donation of $5 or $10 per month! That may seem
like a small amount, but it will make a HUGE impact!
All members and donors – at every level - are invited to celebrate with us at a private preview reception and tour of Sequence Now! on July 11, curated by Andrea Carlson.
Visual artist Suzy Greenberg founded Soo Visual Arts Center in 2001. With your help we can keep moving forward and continue our strong commitment to Suzy Greenberg’s vision for SooVAC now and far into the future.
Over the past twelve years we have had over 1500 artists display work with us…most of these artists live and work in Minnesota. Your support will help us continue our vision of a dynamic community in which artists and audiences challenge each other in an environment where art is integral to everyday life. SooVAC celebrates and fosters local artists.
We Are the Minnesota Arts Community.
And You ARE SooVAC.
